Two sets of voluntary labelling guidelines for the food industry have been developed under the auspices of IGD. Voluntary Labelling Guidelines for Food Allergens and Gluten are aimed at manufacturers and retailers of packaged foods. The guidelines aim to ensure a consistent approach to labelling, across industry, such that the use of allergenic foods as ingredients in food products will always be labelled in the ingredients list, and advisory labelling for the adventitious presence of traces of peanuts and tree nuts will be based on an assessed risk of the manufacturing processes and ingredients supply. Voluntary Guidelines for the Provision of Food Safety Advice on Product Labels aim to supplement statutory requirements and to reinforce food safety messages to assist consumers in their domestic environment.
